The food here is good with more use of chilli than is typical of Moroccan food, but fortunately we like that. However the portions are very small but the bill is high and I have dropped the score from 4 to 3 because of the poor value for money.

I keep going back to this place every time I go to Malaga. The place is kind of old and could get updated but the food is the best Moroccan I have tried (outside Morocco of course). I always order the humus, couscous and green tea with pastries.

The food is great and the staff really friendly. If you are not familiar with Moroccan dishes the owner will explain them to you. The only problem: It's a small place with few tables (most seat only two people).

Having been in malaga for 5 days now, we were bored of the standard tapas served in the majority of restaurants. Having seen this restaurant at number 20 on trip advisor i thought we should give it a try. It was a little difficult to find at first ... we also thought it was closed as the doors were shut....

We LOVED this restaurant! The waiter (maybe owner?) was very knowledgeable about the history and culture behind the food and took the time to share his recommendations. This place is definitely worth visiting, we would go back for sure!

For a really good couscous, this is the place to go. It had been highly recommended by friends, so we booked to try it on the opening night of Málaga feria. What a brilliant start to our evening! Although a couple of dishes had already been suggested by our friends, we decided to let the restaurant decide what would be... More

We eat here in early July 2013. The food is excellent, and the service equal to that. I highly recommend to visit this restaurant when you're in Malaga city center. It is on a walking distance from Calle Larios and other turist locations in Malaga.

Subpar service sometimes, good food, very tourist-oriented. The decor is just for show. They have high prices. Not the best moroccan cuisine found in Spain.
